Are you worried about a permanent frowning look or a thin upper lip? A lip lift is a surgical procedure that permanently elevates the position of the top lip and gives you attractive full lips.
Enhance Your Smile with Full Lips and a Perfect Pout
Dr. Priya Nayyar, the founder of Dermaclinique, is a renowned fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeon and board-certified dermatologist. With years of experience in performing a wide-range of invasive and non-invasive procedures, Dr. Nayyar has established a reputation for being the best dermatologist in St. Petersburg, Florida. While she begins every consultation with a thorough evaluation of past and current medical history and cosmetic concerns, she designs a holistic, customized treatment plan that matches your specific requirements and achieves the best possible outcome.
The upper lip lift procedure corrects these common concerns:
- Teeth not visible while smiling
- More than a 1/2 inch distance between the upper lip and the nose base
- Thin, flat lips
- An upper lip enhanced with a filler that fails to expand vertically
How Does a Lip Lift Work?
Generally performed on the upper lip, a lip lift is a procedure that makes use of surgery to elevate the upper lip’s position to create a relaxed and natural smile. A corner lip lift can also be performed to lift the edges of the mouth to get rid of the “permanent frowning” look.
In the upper lip lift procedure, Dr. Nayyar skillfully shortens the distance between the nose base and the upper lip, resulting in a fuller “pink lip” and exposing more teeth to give natural, full lips and an attractive smile. The corner lip lift corrects the downward edges of the mouth in order to give a relaxed smile.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
An upper lip lift is generally performed under local anesthesia. After Dr. Nayyar makes a small incision beneath the nose, she removes a small skin strip and its underlying tissue. The lip is then elevated to a new position that exposes one-eighth of the teeth and increases the volume of the upper lip permanently.
The entire procedure takes approximately 90 minutes. The results are fuller pink lips and an attractive smile that shows the front teeth.
